was crossed. at thisote without point having all the facts there me, that we know syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. inknow that there are those the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons, if necessary, to protect themselves. of anyeply skeptical claim that, in fact, it was the opposition that use chemical weapons. everybody who knows the facts of chemical weapons stockpile inside syria as well as the syrian government could abilities, i think would question those claims. i know they are floating out there right now. point is, once we establish the facts, i have made clear the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. host: in the newspaper this morning, and israel -- this is from a cnn interview -- host: i want to get your reaction and your thoughts on u.s. policy towards syria. the numbers are on your screen -- host: you can also post a comment on facebook or send a twitter. you can send an e-mail, journal@c-span.org. the washington post, obama warns syria on chemical arms -- host: the british-based syrian obse
's consider working together on areas to change how the government does business and give more value to the taxpayer while we get spending under control. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the chair recognizes the gentleman from georgia, mr. arrow, for five minutes. mr. barrow: mr. speaker, i rise today to urge my colleagues to join me in support of house joint resolution 33 which would reshape the way washington operates. because congress has failed to do its job to find the spending cuts we need to replace the sequester, folks all across this country, including folks in my district in georgia, will pay the price. unfortunately in washington there are rules that prevent members of congress from being penalized for not doing their jobs. the constitution doesn't protect the folks at home so why should it protect the pay of members of congress? the 27th amendment of the constitution was written to prevent members of congress from giving themselves pay increases, but lately it's been used as a shield to prevent a congressional pay cut. my proposal, house joint resolutio
to what we are facing. so this budget grows government. let's not make any excuses. it grows government by increasing spending. and it grows government by a massive increase in taxes. just after we've had one a few months ago. and not counting the massive increase in taxes that's going to occur beginning in 2014 with the implementation of obamacare. when we add that up, when we look at the cost of that, we face dire circumstances. and you would think that the budget being offered to us would not increase debt by 42%, but would address the real problem. now, i know there's been a dispute about how much this budget revenue, taxes are increased. some say $1.5 trillion. those that have presented the budget simply say, oh, no, it's only $1 trillion. whether it's $1.5 trillion or only $1 trillion -- only a trillion, as if only $1 trillion in new taxes on the american people after they just got hit with more than .5 trillion a few months ago and probably hit with another $1 trillion in less than eight months as obamacare kicks in, it just defies credibility. and i think the investment communit
and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is everybody else talked about let's just stick it to the rich. let's raise taxes trillions of dollars. let's go and stick it to special interests like people who he provide gasoline at the pump. to raise taxes on oil companies. ladies and gentlemen, every time you raise taxes, you raise prices. and every time you race -- raise prices the consumer has to pay more for it. these are the ideas that make america less able to be
or woman on the street who knew how to spend their dollar more wisely than a distant federal government, and he did all in his power to prove it by cutting taxes. when governor jeb bush was in office, he cut taxes on floridians by $20 billion. let's talk about the size of government. when ronald reagan was in the white house, he dramatically reduced the ate rah of growth in federal spending and strove to reduce the size of the federal government. when governor bush was in office, he vetoed more than $2.3 billion in earmarked for higher state spending and retuesdayed the size -- reduced the size of the state's government payroll by 13,000 people. when ronald reagan did that on the national level, he did it with a purpose in mind. it was to spur the free market, create opportunity and provide incentives for businesses to frau. in his years in office, over 20 million new jobs were created in governor bush's state of florida, his similar philosophy and economic programs created a thriving state economy where 1.4 million new net jobs were added during his time in office. there are other fund
even passed, the senate democrats' proposal leaves more debt and government that never stops growing. after four years, the democrats are unable to identify any real reforms, no tax reform and no entitlement reform and it's not a serious proposal. i stand again in support of the house budget because it's responsible, it's real, it balances in 10 years and it's the last thing from political. and i yield back. the chair: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the gentleman from maryland. van vanch you know -- mr. van hollen: you know what's wrong, mr. chairman? it's to pretend to the american people that you can have it all ways. what's wrong is to pretend that you have a budget that's imbalance in 10 years and pretend that you're getting rid all of the affordable care act, getting rid of obamacare. what's wrong is demagogging savings in medicare which we achieved by ending payments to private companies. by demagogging that and using it to balance your budget and say you know what? we didn't use it to balance our budget. that's what people don't like. people trying to have
of the state legislatures, governor's mansions, and there's a difference between state government and the federal government. the absurdity in a state capital, that we did not have a budget for three years, yet here in washington the senate did not pass a budget for three years and the president just not serious about what americans think is the biggest problem of that country. they do not even have a budget for three years? state government, closer to the people, has to get things done. i used to tell trent lott, the difference between governors and senators is senators talk about doing things and governors do things. there's a lot of truth to democrat governors as well. their party is so committed to washington that you do not see many of these governors who are willing to talk the way republican governors are about how we do a better job at the state level. there's much more bipartisanship. i like to think i had a relative success will governorship, but eight of my eight years of governor, i have a democrat house majority, and seven of my years, i had a democrat senate majority
on the federal government to set them up. >> no money was budgeted for the federal government to do that. congress seems unwilling to give the administration money to do that. we're looking at a very messy situation. >> house republican speaker john boehner said in a statement today that three years into obamacare, health insurance premiums have, quote, spiked, and the price tag for the overall law has, quote, nearly doubled: rick? >> molly henneberg, thank you very much. >> the u.s. senate passing its first budget proposal in more than four years, voting in a marathon session ending just before dawn this morning. >> the ayes are 50. the nays are 49. >> the senate has passed a budget. >> the nonbinding proposal, along with a measure passed in the house is expected to serve as the basis for future negotiations with the white house. elizabeth prann has more from our dc news room. >> it may have taken all night, but the senate narrowly approvessed the budget for the first time in four years, passing 50-49. it's a $3.7 trillion blue print plan raising a trillion dollars in new taxes and the
they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the government's budget. if we continue on our current path, the medicare trust fund will be insolvent by 2024. and medicare and medicaid will grow from 24% of the federal budget to almost 30%, crowding out other needed investments. we have to reduce health care costs in both the private sector and public sector in order to ensure america remains competitive in a global market, but there is a right way to reform our health care system and there is a wrong way. with all due respect, mr. ryan's path is the wrong way. mr. ryan's plan for medicare and medicaid misses the point. his solution simply shifts the costs from government to patients rather than reducing health care costs. under the ryan budget, seniors would pay as much as $1,200 more each year by 2030 and $6,000 more by 2050. for over half of medicare beneficiaries with incomes less than $21,000, a $1,200 increase is a huge piece of their budget. he also proposes block granting medicaid, which would cut medicaid funding by approximately $700 billion over the next decade and
. as a global fleet operator serving both commercial and government customers, reliability and continuity of service are our highest priorities. whether it's uav operations over afghanistan or the final game of the ncaa tournament or financial statements that have to be transferred securely around the world, um, we know that our customers expect flawless performance. to deliver this level of performance, we have to daily deal with a range of threats. probably a highest priority for us today is radio frequency interference. many times it's accidental, sometimes intentional. space debris and other challenges of space flight, cyber attacks, solar weather, space systems reliability, the fact that we today don't have an affordable technical solution for refueling and repairing satellites on orbit and last but not least, an international launch industry that's far from robust. now, our economy depends on the ability to create and instantly distribute vast amounts of data around the planet. space-based platforms have become a vital link in the national and global economies, and they're essential
taxes taken out of the pockets of hardworking american families, more government spending which adds to the trillions of dollars in debt that will be handed down to the next generation. our friends on the other side of the aisle talk about a balanced approach, but they refuse to even balance their own budget. our vision calls for a stop to washington's failed policies and reckless spending. it says american families and small businesses understand you can't spend more than you take in. you need to balance your budget, and it's time for washington to do the same. this vision seeks to protect the things that we value most, to keep the promises we made to our seniors, to our veterans. i'm the son of a u.s. marine. while at the same time allowing us to leave a better future for our kids and our grandkids, that's the vision i want to work toward and that's why i'm proud to support the house budget committee's proposal which we'll be voting on later this week. this isn't about passing a budget for one year, just one time. this is about creating lasting solutions that help grow our economy
organizations that do competency training and in many cases have partnered with the federal government and has tripled in size since the affordable care act at hhs has been interested in making sure those young starting out providers have the opportunity to get cultural competency training. many trainers do that in various parts of the country. another major resources the joint commission. my parents are health care providers, so why not all about sometimes a little bit of attention between the standards set out and how providers feel they are actually equipped to meet the standards. when the commission establishes new standards that could nondiscrimination on the basis of orientation identity started a project to make cultural competency materials were widely available so clinicians thought that they have the tools to make that change. there's a monograph from the joint commission that pulls together resources for mayra has mentioned for the others. >> hi, i work with whitman walker held and i'm happy to say they were often the anti-cascade remedy. here we do to a thick work in the community.

$250 a year for health care. but the government has reimbursted all the increases in the actual price of diagnostic and the actual utilization of treatment and i did diamostic higher than the private sector systems. and this tricare problem will increase even further when the affordable care act pushes everyone in to buying a medical plan, because for all of those who are not insured now, particularly guards and reservists whom at least 30% according to a recent study don't have insurance. it will be cheaper to buy to the tricare system then even to pay the penalty for not having insurance. another key decision taken in 2004, in response to the recruiting shortfall was to adopt higher pay scale indexing in the pentagon. previous pay increases were linked to the employment cost index, but in 2004, the department changed that to use the employment cost index plus 0.5%. this is added a whole another layer of cost to the dod base. for the past or two or three years congress has been having to repeal the benefits. to increase the copay for tricare, but politically it's difficult. you will

be nonbinding so would act as guidelines for the u.s. government. but at the heart of the debate, how do you reduce the government's massive budget debt, and changes in taxes and spending. today the top democrat and the republican had their say. >> both sighs favor closing took loopholes that favor the wealthiest americans, and the senate thinks shouldsome revenue should be idea to tackle the deficit and invest in the middle class, not just simply cut tax rates for the rich. >> usually you can tax more and spend more and borrow more and that will somehow create growth and prosperity. i believe we have had four years of that experiment, which i fundamentally doubted and opposed from the beginning. and it hasn't worked. >> shepard: regardless of whether it's worked or hasn't, the insiders say the democratic budget will likely pass. mike emanuel is in washington. how has the vote been going and what's it like in there so far? reporter: we expect starting any moment they'll vote on a series of amendments between now and late night tonight. 25 to 40. summon hot-button issues including abortion, s
in the united states. combating it requires government solutions. there's not a better time in my life when things have been as dangerous as it is today in the threats more diverse. due to the planned budget cuts, we are posed to cut our defense budget by $8 trillion in the next 10 years. we're talking about what has are to come out of the budget. another half killing would come through sequestration. it is interesting that that is the only area where this administration has been actively cutting government. it addresses the need for a national military strategy to reflect the global security environment. the military, and the growing budget, currently the current strategy as well. starting with the strategic guidance issued in january 2012. it seems that we are falling into a trap of creating strategies entirely on how quickly we can cut defense budgets rather than as a result give an honest assessment. i am very much concerned. i always thought that the major mission of the federal government is to protect the homeland. we have to get back to that mentality and recognize the threat and yo

. they are not funding at government entities. it's very difficult to do the work you do and i commend you for it. what kind of demand do you have for the services that you provide? >> an unmeetable demand. you are right. we are privately funded and we scrounge for funds to keep working. we not only get to use students to work on our cases but we also get to teach them and get them to understand those things that john was talking about, how they need to question, don't go into court when a judge says, oh, well, yes the statute for post conviction dna says that you are entitled to counsel but i'm suspending that because there is no money to pay for an attorney. don't walk out and say a judge says we can't do it. teach them. then because we have no money, we reach out to the local bar. law firms like jim's law firm or chris's law firm help us in situations where we are trying to establish counsel and reinforce. we get over a thousand cases a year. from that first request we are usually able to take it down to about half. many of them who are writing to us are not claiming to be innocent. they are probabl

than the government takes in. continue os soned -- to spend more money than washington takes in, and the people of this great country understand we can't continue going down this road over and over and over. a couple of points that mr. scott made regarding the republican budget which is the budget that is the base budget here that we're bringing to the floor that in fact does get to balance in a responsible way. it saves an strengthens and secures medicare as opposed to the misinformation that was provided by the other side. it makes certain that states have the kind of flexibility so they're able to provide the highest quality of health care to their medicaid population. it doesn't, as a matter of fact, address in a specific way the issue of social security because it provides for a reserve fund so that's able to be addressed in a more specific way through the committee structure which is also the important thing to recognize about the issue of tacks. our friends on the other side are specific about what they accuse us of regarding tax bus as you know, mr. chairman, it's the wa
. there is no precedent for something off that ticket and thrust into governing responsibility. the balance he has to strike is doing his demanding day job and maintaining his options in the event he wants to run for president and a difficult balance to strike. >> you know him well. do you sense he aspires to more nationally? did he get a taste for president politics the last time around? >> i don't want to speak for him but i think he continues to have a taste and ambition to have a big impact on some of these issues he cares about nationally. he's a number of ways he can do it punish. mark leibovich wrote that article. paul ryan can't lose. meaning he could run for president if he stays in congress, he'll be chairman of ways and means committee and some talk about him playing a more prominent role in leadership so he has to decide where he can make his mark. no one i believe has done more to advance the conservative policy agenda in terms of where he has moved through republican congress the last for a years. >> mark, he's a young man, in his early 40s. he has a lot of politics ahead of him. wha
understood why the government would come in the philippines, would utilize that approach to resolve this conflict. because after all, efforts have been made to reach an agreement to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. and that had failed. and, therefore, the ability to petition and to have a resolution of this through that method was logical. and i think that the resolution of these disputes have become by nature of using the rule of law. and that dispute mechanism resolution that exists under the treaty is an effective way, as i'm explaining to this you -- explained to the now, and effective way to address this problem. because our goal and our diplomacy is based on urging governance, not just the type of nationalist rhetoric that leads to confrontation. but instead, to work multinationally and order to resolve disputes. we can see periods in the past when nations with competing claims came very close to resolution, and, unfortunately, because of nationalist voices, in both countries, we failed to achieve that opportunity to resolve a situation. and that's what i think the uni
their wages and trusted in their government that they would be taken care of. medicare is the most efficient health plan in our country. it has a 2% overhead. let me repeat that. it's a 2% overhead, more efficient than any private plan. the problem isn't medicare. the problem is the rising cost of health care. and what is it that we have to get under control? it's a cost that's gone up exponentially in our country compared to the rest of the world. republicans want to do nothing about the real problem of rising costs. rather than tackle the hard issue, they want to shift the costs onto seniors. people like my mom. she's 96 right now, and she depends on that important program. six years ago she had to be checked up for a heart condition, and she had an an rism below her die -- an uerism below her diaphragm. they said it would be difficult to solve, not get a stint because of her age, and she was 70. well, a few years later that anyeurism became larger and was told if nothing was done she would die and the doctors looked at her again and noticed that at the advanced age of 90 she walked around

and democratic state if things don't change. and he urged young israelis to pressure their government because he said politicians do not take risks unless there is public pressure for change. that was his key message. >> one thing that struck a lot of folks, the president's different stance and tone in regards to this trip. let's listen to remarks that president obama made in cairo in 2009 compared to remark he is gave in ramallah on thursday. take a look. >> this construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. it is time for these settlements to stop. how do we get a sovereignty for the palestinian people and assure security for the israeli people? that's not to say settlements are not important t is to say that if we some those two problems, the settlement problem will be solved. >> bill schneider that is a significant reversal what is behind that? >> he wants to get the peace talks started, the palestinians have essentially echoed the american position, which is they won't go to the table unless the settlement -- another moratorium on settlements, in which c

knows what is happening in jordan and you have a new israel government elected not to make peace or more but simply deal with the orthodox in the israel society. this is the most unripe situation for diplomacy any american president has walked into. >> mike, this american president, i think, has bent over backwards to be an honest broker between the israelis and palestinians and he did so in a way that actually angered the israelis. so hamas launches rockets into israel while the president is there and what do they do? they actually push away a guy that, again, is trying to be an honest broker. >> yeah, he has tried to be an honest broker and paid a price to it to some extent in domestic politics. what do you think of the theory, it's more than a theory, i would guess, that this trip is based largely less on policy than the president's personality, convincing the israelis and the israeli government that i am your friend. the united states is your friend. we are not going to falter or hesitate or anything when it comes to the defense of israel. >> i don't think he is aiming so much to the
as obama scares us into thinking it is. we know that local and state governments are cutting back. that's not positive. finally, there is this missed quarter evidence. federal express did blow up. it was not a good number. caterpillar is down 12%, retail sales number might not translate into weak earnings. i was prepared for cat sales to be flat, maybe up a little, not down double digits. then we got oracle. while oracle almost always bounces back, making my charitable trust which owns the stock want to buy more, i have to believe the macroenvironment has gotten worse than we thought. oracle is not that bad a company. you don't want to get too negative either. what could be right? while i don't expect a grand bargain in washington, i think that's off the table, it's always possible and if that happens and you're short the market, betting against it or don't have enough stock, you will be left behind. you will be crushed. you short the market, we get a grand bargain, one solution. second, the brinkmanship game in europe could get resolved with some solution we don't know about yet that w

out right now. it is up roughly 84 points. a government spokesperson inside cyprus says officials could make a decision later on today. cyprus is facing a monday deadline to come up with $7.5 billion in order to secure a bailout from the european union and the international monetary fund. all right. the faa today announces it is cutting funding to 189 air traffic control towers because of those forced spending cuts. at least three of the towers were built with federal stimulus money and have just recently opened. the faa is furloughing employees and eliminating shifts at some towers. the agency says the towers targeted for closure are at lower volume airports with fewer than 150,000 takeoffs or landings in a year's span. >>> to politics now. we're seeing signs that congress is moving closer to comprehensive immigration reform. some leading conservatives now say they will support a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. congressman paul ryan spelled out his position in "the situation room" with wolf blitzer. >> well, i think we can get comprehensive immigration reform. i
